Trying to read Bernard's blather will drive you nuts. It's a good think he cannot put together a coherent paragraph with coherent transition. Otherwise he might influence some dumbed-down future Al
Sharpton.

Inequality In The USA. Has the highest level among the advanced industrial countries. Comparing to some such as Hungary, Belgium and France which have no significant increases to their inequality. Where in as the USA has been increasing to be more aligned with Iran, Jamaica, Uganda and the Philippines.
GDP does not take into account the measure of inequality. Does not measure the security of its citizens.
All boats rise equally on the rising tide is no longer applicable here in the USA. We have harbors that restrict through manipulation the rising tides. The few affluent yachts at the open end of the harbor suffer no restrictions of significance, equal to the manipulated incoming tide, to the boats in the restricted harbors. Tide dams have been erected to offset the flow of rising tides within the harbors.
Example; Presently USA CEO’s have 200 to 1 ratio in income to the average laborer. Japan as one example has a 16 to 1 ratio. Less than 50 years ago USA had a 30 to 1 ratio. This rising inequality has stimulated additional wanna-be’s executives to seek the same. One example can be found in the UK. The UK’s “High Pay Commission” reported that their top executives were approaching Victorian levels. Presently though they are at the levels of the 1920’s as measured for inequality in laborers’ productivity distributions of wealth.
Sweden, UK and additionally some of the Scandinavian nations and some within the European Union have taken steps to nip this inequality of distributions. Restricting CEO’s pay to a ratio of corporations earnings and out law golden parachutes. Bonuses and gifts as well. There is a provision that allows for parts or all to be circumnavigated if the voters agree. That is, not the voters of the corporation boards but all citizens voters. Sweden passed it in 2012 the others are putting it up for debate and or vote by their citizens.
USA…. the thundering sound of crickets on the issue.

Bernard do you know there is a picture of you on the internet? Being arrested for drunk driving.. Bald headed guy, stupid grin on your face? Is that you? Was in Florida dude. Unless of course Forand is merely your moniker. Or maybe there are two Forands in Florida? Anyhow, your judgement of paranoid regarding me may be premature. My sense of humor can be on the dark side!

The Myth
In a land far, far away. There was once upon a time, when nations all over the world sought to emulate America.
They tried uniting their currencies {EU} without addressing their political and finical institutions. Alas it will not work. Presently this is being validated with their demise due to austerity prejudices.
Reexamining America in 2008 they found a flaw. America’s GDP per capita was tarnished and an inaccurate accounting of reality. They have been misled in their beliefs of America.
Economist within these nations searched for the truth. What they found; was that the U.S. economy was unstable even when all was appearing as well according to the GDP. They realized that growing inequality of wealth and income was being siphoned to the 1%. Hoarding the wealth and no distribution would soon run the engine of the working class out of the fluid movement of the fuel they required. Resulting in sputtering and inefficient production. For lack of production and the fluid income to sustain consumption, it soon proved to be a catastrophic error, Demise soon followed.
Half a century in the making by right wing policies. Living standards regressed back to earl 1900’s !
USA kept up appearances with the GDP increasing from 1980 to 2010.
Increasing by three fourths. All the while the male income declined.
Increases in austerity polices of the right continued. Siphoning wealth and income to the 1 % producing ever increasing inequality.
Thus; 1} U.S. Income growth occurs greater to the 1% and lesser to the 99%.
2} Inequality of laborer’s productivity distribution blossoms.
3} Middle class and below lose their standard of living to equate with what they were a century ago.
4} Inequalities’ in wealth is greater than the inequality of income!
5} Insecurity in income, health and home materializes.
6} Increasing poverty subjugates ever increasing amount of the middle class populace.
7} Middle class essentially is hollowed out.
8} Income mobility decreases advancing America “Land Of Opportunity” to be identified as a Myth.
9} America is now recognized by the rest of the advanced industrial nations as land of ever increasing inequality surpassing their own.
Right wing confronted with These analyst from the economist find it “Inconvenient”. Befuddled to explain it..
2014 coming up people….

Have so much interest in me? You honor me. As I told Tex I’m the proud guest of the Sovereignty of Florida. They provide for all my needs. Set me up in the penthouse and wait on me hand and foot. Provide me with security and all I can eat. Leisure time is constant. Just loving it. Now if you want to visit or stop by to chat let me know as I will have to authorize my security guards to allow you to visit. They are very protective of me. So now what has that got to do with the ever increasing inequality policies of the right wing that is delivering us into some form of an Aristocratic government with an anarchist serfdom ? Ahh lights out. They are so attentive to me.. Got to get my full rest and sleep. Think I’ll go to the library tomorrow or just be lazy and order up what I desire…. Ta, Ta Bad To The Bone is playing. My favorite lullaby…

The old"blame the Jews"syndrome, trotted out by those who find it easier to hate, than think. Hitler knew that people responded to raw emotion over reason , and pulled Germany to the brink of extinction, as the Germans engaged in an orgy of hate. Only to discover, that hate goes both ways.
Corporations control our government.
Jews own these corporations.
Equals: Jews control America.
How do you not understand that?

If that's not enough, you believe Jews to be the "chosen ones" right? Newsflash, Jews killed our savior, Jesus Christ.

They are waging a war against Christianity, they hate Jesus and the New Testament. Try reading a bible sometime, you will see how they are cursed by Jesus.

AND; no good ever comes from hate, as hate begets evil.
That explains it.

Whites are hated by everyone of color because of being encouraged to do so. Jews encourage this hate, to divide us.
Look at Paula Dean, she said nothing that would justify her being punished. How did she earn it, by being white.
Trayvon Martin made victim of the year, based on lies intended to punish a white man. News lightened his picture, to make the Hispanic man look white - so non-whites can hate on whites some more. But, the trial proved Trayvon was the aggressor, Zimmerman was defending his own life.
Gee, wonder why whites might be getting fed up?

If you're going to start quoting the bible on race relations, don't forget to quote the parts where God says not to mix tribes.

We could unite to stop poverty, if miscegenation wasn't a threat.
I think that's the real cause of racism - miscegenation.

Can see you are one of the less developed. Whites majority? Hmm think that is not so or it soon will be so. So, so what? Its your narrow minded inequality that keeps us in the 23rd position in this more advanced world.
UN exposes Inequality
UNDP { the UN Development Program} measures the “Human Development” factors. Income, health and education. It then applies the inequality factors for results.
Before factoring the inequality factor; USA comes in fourth, following Australia, The Netherlands and Norway.
After the factoring of the inequality factor; USA comes in 23 third. All European Nations and all Scandinavian Nations that have Universal Education, Health Care and Income Security exceeds the USA.
USA counters the its to finically expensive and will slow growth. Sweden’s former finance minister proves this to be false. Stating the robust growth of his nation during the years of 2000 to 2010. Sweden’s growth was 2.31% where in as the USA was at 1.85%. Quote “ We have grown so fast and done so well because we had high taxes”! Higher taxes that paid to keep their infrastructures laboring in their maintenance and upgrades, Universal Education, Universal Health Care, from birth to grave and Technology’s for their future. All the while, we were riding the bushwhacking roller coaster that ended in a catastrophic crash of biblical proportions. Losses to the tune of $6 Trillion to be paid for by Main Street. Such is the price for admission for the roller coaster ride that advanced our inequality to Main Street. Wall Street.. Oh business as usual…
You are so full of it. Regardless of all that meaningless BS you just spilled ...

Before immigration ran wild, before desegregation, before global meddeling, before race-mixing and gay abundance, before the family unit was destroyed,...
America was #1. What do you think happened?

LOL you want us to be Pilgrims all over again? Hey about 1773 and we could gather up all the TEA and cast it out unto the waters of oblivion. Oh Yeah that sounds like fun..Hmm wonder who created Satan? Does god turn the other cheek when smitten by Satan? Would that mean he is a coward? Fun to dabble within the deranged minds of bigots.
Ah here we go into the summer of 2013. Liberals are rolling out the barrels for fun and singing on sunshine. Resting in shaded pools of the cool, cool changes evolving. A higher evolution to our politics’ maturity is budding forth once again. In the past decade “We The People” have examined ourselves and found us wanting to step out of the gloom and doom scenarios of the traditionalist conservative views of the past.
Shackles of prejudice are falling to the ground. Mary Jane is now identified with beneficial outcomes. Illegal immigrants are observing a light at the end of the tunnel. Gays are growing in their freedoms to be gay. America is awakening to be once again the land of the diverse melting pot it once was. Rejuvenating strengths that was always their fundamental strengths‘.
Demographics of the ideologies of Jim Crow, John Birch or the hyped up McCarthy are fading into the archaic dust bins of our history. Another dark chapter of our growing pains.“We The People” have reached a majority that choose to distance themselves from the gloom and doom policies that promote these dysfunctional callow ideologies.
51% are now in favor of gays to be gay. 72% agree that this is inevitable. Mary Jane up 11 points from 2010. Previously only less than 1/3 comprehended its beneficial factors. This according to Pew Polls. CBS/N.Y. Times poll have discovered 83% favor a path to citizenship for the illegal immigrants. 20% higher than the 2007 Pew Polls. Which was the last time this issue was addressed.
Business scholar Fariborz Ghadar, from the Center Of Strategic and International Affaires explains what is occurring. Quote “ Whether it’s war on terror or the recession or this or that; Society then reacts to those periods and change results” he goes on to say “The younger generation is getting more accepting, the pace of change is much faster, data is available to us more quickly. We’re more plugged in to the world around us and its combining to allow people to develop their own opinions and be open to others”.
1980’s generation grew up with 911 and the gloom and doom of the past of the bushwhacking days. They are now 18 to 32. Here in lies the moving force for the abrupt change in right wing polarization to left wing polarization.
Similar to the 60’s after the Nam episodes. Social rights sprouted, as it is now with the 80’s generation.
Today we have instant communication and knowledge at our finger tips. Fraudulent propaganda schemes of our past prejudices become exposed. Observe the effect on programs such as “Weeds, Modern Family and Ugly Betty” to name a few. They stimulate diversity and liberalization. Advancing the goals of the broad open minded liberal, as opposed to the narrow close minded conservative. There will continue to be gloomy times. They however are advocating their own demise with each experienced generation that follows. Growing in intellect and controlling, the gloom and doom scenarios. Science will soon render these gloomy days for agricultural benefits. Removing them from authority based organizations. Obama once said “ Each successive generation creates a new space for peace and tolerance and justice and fairness” Right to the point.
Summarize.. or shutup.

Every Friday, our local Fox news features "Viewers Voice" so people can call in and comment on news of the week.

Many called in about Paula Dean. You know, she was railroaded by blacks for saying something they didn't like.

All the pro-Paula calls were fro m blacks, who said she was being railroaded and they had never seen blacks act this way.

Then, there was a white caller. He was like "She's a racist and needs to be punished".

So, all this time I think blacks are terrorizing whites in America, making them silent.

Could it be, it's the damned white liberals, like Bernard, who are responsible for chaining white America? Blacks didn't complain about Paula Dean - white liberals did!

I don't see you saying anything of importance. You don't care what's happening, as long as you can call people "boy" to make yourself feel macho.
I bet you're a 5"4 little jelly worm that can't get a date.

Kind of like, how, you see a huge pick up truck park, only to watch a little short guy get out.

If you were truly "Superior" you would own the sins of your fathers. Instead you choose to justify these under some higher purpose theology. NOw THAT iS CoWardiCE!! Are you pretending to be a man now? Just clue me in, I like to keep up.
Could you possibly just get out of history for 2 minutes, to acknowledge current events? That's the problem with black people, like you - you have that victim mentality firmly emplanted and, if you can't profit from it - it doesn't exist.
